Just thought that I would write a post to let people know that I am still alive…we have just been super busy. we just moved, so getting settled in the new place has taken a bit of time. I also picked up a long term job for a sixth grade class (the teacher is on maternity leave) that will last until the end of the year, which is roughly another 3 1/2 weeks. The last month of sixth grade is the busiest time because it is when they are doing all of their speialized centers and engineering projects (they do an egg drop activity where they have to design and build something that goes around an egg to keep it from breaking and they make bridges using only glue and toothpicks that we tie weights to in order to see how much weight they can hold. It’s a surprisingly large amount.)…not to mention promotion and end of the year stuff like that! So, as a forewarning, you might not see a new blog from me until after summer vacation starts (which is disturbingly short…we go back at the end of July…boo!). As I wind down, I want to thank (again) everyone who helped out with our move…we seriously would not have been able to do it without you! I still can’t believe that we got everything loaded and unloaded in less than 3 hours! You guys rock!!
